Actually, this is now partially obsolete (sorry!).  The Coot console
output will always be the most useful in determining whether or not
the programs will communicate - aside from the presence of Python, of
course.  I used to redirect the console output to an internal buffer
in Phenix, but since this was causing freezes on some configurations,
I now leave it alone.
